National Certifications 2009

National certification reflects the expertise and knowledge of nurses, contributes to a professional practice environment and to the overall quality of care. Our nurses are certified in a number of specialty areas.

In 2008, 233 (30.60%) of our eligible RNs were nationally certified. Today 309 (39.26%) of our eligible nursing staff have accomplished this goal. Congratulations to the nurses who have maintained or achieved national certification in fiscal year 2009!
